Transactional vs. NonTranscational For The Layman?

I've been doing some research on the different DB engines available for mysql. Right now, it looks like the innoDB might be best to power my online UI & ACLs. I would appreciate it though if someone could explain to me if there were an instance where I would use the ISAM/MyISAM engines instead of INNODB since you can customize the engine on a per table basis.

Can someone explain to me what the difference is between a transcational db and non-transactional db? Please keep the explanation elementary because DB's & their technology seems to just go over my head for some reason. Thanks.
